This is a town NPC. A house may be required in order for them to appear.

The Zoologist is an Pre-Hardmode NPC vendor that will spawn once the following criteria have been met:

  • There is an empty house.
  • A certain amount of progress has been made filling the Bestiary. (10% filled/52 Entries)

She sells a large variety of vanity items, in addition to many mounts and pets, critter-themed accessories, and the Universal Pylon, depending on the Bestiary's completion percentage.

The Zoologist prefers the Forest and dislikes the Desert. She loves the Witch Doctor, likes the Golfer, dislikes the Angler, and hates the Arms Dealer as neighbors.

The Zoologist is probably the Golfer's sister, as hinted by the quote "Of course I like <name of Golfer>! I like, knew them since I was born!"
